Kathy Griffin Banned From CNN. For, What, the Next 2 Months?

It’s too early to tell whether CNN really won’t be inviting Kathy Griffin back on its New Year’s Eve countdown, but word has it she’s been banned from the network after dropping the F-bomb during the live NYE broadcast, running her mouth about cocaine, and all but outing her co-host Anderson Cooper (okay, the last part happened, but it’s not one of the reasons given for her removal). Okay, but does this mean she’s also axed from flirting with Larry King, live?

And while critics can point to CNN’s low ratings, we’d argue that malady had more to do with the tosses to Lance Bass in Las Vegas, which were neither interesting nor sinful.
